Swedish court rules Spelpaus cannot be overruled

Topics: Legal & compliance Marketing & affiliates People Sports betting Strategy Swedish court rules Spelpaus cannot be overruled The Administrative Court of Linköping has ruled that Swedish gamblers cannot end periods of self-exclusion before the agreed period.The ruling was made following a challenge from a player, who had attempted to have themselves removed from the country’s national self-exclusion database Spelpaus before the agreed period had concluded.Having had their request to be removed from the database rejected by Spelpaus, they took their case to court. However the Administrative Court ruled that if an individual could voluntarily end their suspension, it would undermine the purpose of Spelpaus, and therefore rejected the claim.Spelpaus, which launched on January 1 to coincide with the opening of Sweden’s regulated igaming market, allows players to self-exclude for one, three or six months, or until further notice.Players are required to register with their BankID number, and are then blocked from accessing igaming sites for the agreed period, while operators are also required to remove their details from all marketing databases.Those that choose to exclude until further notice are blocked for at least a year, after which they can lift their self-imposed suspension via the Spelpaus site. Early in February Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen revealed that more than 20,000 citizens had voluntarily excluded themselves from gambling.Spelinspektionen has been quick to ensure all licensees comply with a requirement to integrate themselves with Spelpaus, so they are able to check every player against the database to ensure they are not illegally targeting excluded individuals.The regulator has since warned that it will impose hefty penalties against non-compliant licensees, warning that repeat offenders run the risk of having their licence revoked.In related news Svenska fotbollförbundets’ (Svff) efforts to have sportsbook licences rescinded appear to have come to an end, after the country’s Court of Appeals refused to grant the country’s governing body for football leave to appeal an earlier ruling.
In December Svff moved to have the date at which sports betting licences became effective pushed back, in order to have additional restrictions placed on licensed operators. However first the Administrative Court of Linköping, then the Court of Appeals, ruled that Spelinspektionen, as the country’s gambling regulator held the power to decide which types of bets were allowed.With the Court of Appeals rejecting Svff’s attempt to appeal its original objection, the matter appears to be dead.

Free Christmas parking on the cards for Limerick city

first_imgWhatsApp Print NewsLocal NewsFree Christmas parking on the cards for Limerick cityBy Guest Writer – November 6, 2013 729 FREE city parking is on the cards again this year for the big Christmas shopping spree. City councillors were told that final details of how and when the free parking will work are now being ironed out and an announcement is expected shortly.City business people will welcome the move, which helped to significantly increase footfall and trade in the city in the run-up to Christmas last year.The news came at a meeting of the city council where a number of councillors had called for the parking incentive.During the discussion, Cllr Gerry McLoughlin (Labour) said that free parking hours or days should be extended into the City of Culture year. “We want to show off our city and we want people to come in and see it,” he said.Cllr Kevin Kiely (Fine Gael) said that “someone needs to have a word with the city’s four parking wardens. I’ve had 12 phone calls about them. They are waiting for people to go into a shop for a couple of minutes and they jump out give them a ticket. We will have no problem with parking in the city if this continues – no one will come in”.Director of services Paul Crowe told the councillors the plans for Christmas parking are being finalised and details will be available shortly.However, he rejected the claim that people who park for a few minutes are being ticketed.“There is a period of grace of 10 minutes or more at the start of a parking period and at the end and the wardens allow that and often much more. If people get tickets after a few minutes it’s because they are parked illegally or blocking other road users,” he said.

DTI Tupe paper should clear up legal confusion

first_img Previous Article Next Article The long-overdue DTI consultation paper on the new Tupe regulations is expected shortly and should make this area of legislation clearer for confused employers.Head of employment law at Pinsent Curtis and Tupe expert John McMullen said that the DTI has been considering plans by the Tupe forum, to make things crystal clear so there is never any doubt at all when a transfer of regulations applies. “I know there is sympathy for a Christel Schmidt-type approach so that Tupe would apply in most cases.”For example, in local government the Tupe regulations would apply to all situations where the same service is contracted out, re-tendered or brought back in-house. “In other words, no more argument about Tupe or non-Tupe bids, no more wrangling over the difference between first and second generation contracts, no more second guessing about whether there may be a later challenge as to whether Tupe applies or not.” DTI Tupe paper should clear up legal confusionOn 3 Oct 2000 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.

Biden revokes Presidential Permit for $8bn Keystone XL pipeline project

first_img Newly sworn-in US President Joe Biden signs executive order to cancel Presidential Permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. (Credit: Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies/ US President Joe Biden has revoked the Presidential Permit issued for TC Energy’s $8bn Keystone XL pipeline project by his predecessor Donald Trump.The 1,947km long pipeline is proposed to deliver 830,000 barrels per day (Bbl/day) of crude oil sourced from Hardisty, Alberta in Canada to Steele City, Nebraska in the US.Donald Trump had issued Presidential Permit to the project twice, first in March 2017 and two years later to override an appeals court ruling.Following Biden’s signing of an executive order to scrap the permit, TC Energy has suspended advancement of the crude oil pipeline project. The Canadian energy company said that it would review the decision, study its implications, and consider its options.TC Energy to cease capitalising costsThe company will also cease capitalising costs, which include interest during construction, with immediate effect. Furthermore, the company said that it will assess the carrying value of its investment in Keystone XL, net of project recoveries.TC Energy said that Biden’s decision was expected while adding that it would reverse a comprehensive regulatory process that lasted more than 10 years.According to the company, the Keystone XL pipeline would transport oil in an environmentally responsible manner while boosting North American energy security.TC Energy president and CEO François Poirier said: “Our base business continues to perform very well and, aside from Keystone XL, we are advancing $25 billion of secured capital projects along with a robust portfolio of other similarly high quality opportunities under development.“These initiatives are expected to generate growth in earnings and cash flow per share and support annual dividend increases of eight to ten per cent in 2021 and five to seven per cent thereafter.”Permit cancellation to lead to thousands of layoffsThe Canadian firm also said that US President’s decision will now result in the layoff of thousands of workers. Besides, it would negatively affect industry commitments to use new renewable energy and also equity partnerships with Indigenous groups, said TC Energy.The Keystone XL pipeline project was estimated to create 2,800 construction jobs in Canada and 10,400 similar jobs in the US.In late 2020, TCS Energy inked a deal with Natural Law Energy which enables the latter to make an equity investment of up to CAD1bn ($792.7m) in the Keystone XL pipeline project.Meanwhile, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued a statement, saying: “Earlier today, Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States of America. While we welcome the President’s commitment to fight climate change, we are disappointed but acknowledge the President’s decision to fulfil his election campaign promise on Keystone XL.“I spoke directly with President Biden about the project last November, and Ambassador Hillman and others in our government made the case to high-level officials in the incoming administration.“Workers in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and across Canada will always have our support. Canada is the single-largest supplier of energy to the United States, contributing to U.S. energy security and economic competitiveness, and supporting thousands of jobs on both sides of the border.” Project owner TC Energy to suspend advancement of the Canada-US crude oil pipeline following the decisionlast_img read more
